January 2019 – St. Margaret College Senior Secondary School Verdala students discover the richness of the National Library of Valletta, Malta

During one of the cultural visits to Valletta, a group of students from St. Margaret College Senior Secondary School, Verdala, Cospicua paid a short visit to the National Library of Valletta, Malta. Students were accompanied by their teacher Martin Azzopardi sdc and were shown round the library by Ass. Librarian Mr Donald Briffa.
The National Library serves as a research depot for many scholars. It holds many important archives especially those of the Universita’ dei Gurati (the island’s local government prior to 1530) and of the Knights of St John. The library contains many historically significant books including the big private collection of books of Fra Louis Guérin de Tencin and of Cardinal Joaquin Portocarrero.

December 2018 – St. Margaret College Senior Secondary School Verdala students reflect upon Christmas – time of unity and peace between the three monotheistic religions

As part of the Christmas religious festivities held at school, three students from St. Margaret College Senior Secondary School, Verdala, Cospicua, were invited by teacher Martin Azzopardi sdc to reflect upon the peaceful and unity spirit of Christmas. Though Christmas is celebrated worldwide by Christians to commemorate and celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ – the Son of God, it should also serve as a time of peace and unity for the three monotheistic religions.
Christmas is the feast of LIGHT, cleaning our hearts from the DARKNESS of SIN while calling us to LOVE and to OPEN OUR HEARTS to everyone – Christian, Muslim, Jew or Pagan. Let us seek what UNITES us and not what DIVIDES us.
